Does Julian Good-Jones have any shot at making this Philadelphia Eagles roster?
On paper, Julian Good-Jones just stands out. Nothing says “right guard” like the words six-foot-five and 315 pounds. Any Eagles fan with the preoccupying thought of keeping Carson Wentz on the field and healthy has to be intrigued with any young offensive lineman that’s built like a refrigerator, especially when your quarterback has a lengthy injury history.
Here’s something of note. Wentz’s two most famous injuries as a professional, the season-ending injury in L.A. and the knockout shot by Jadeveon Clowney, both were the results of leaving the pocket, but that doesn’t mean teams shouldn’t use common sense and build their line.
Unfortunately for this undrafted rookie, Peters’ addition probably means that the ceiling for Good-Jones is, most-likely, a spot on the practice squad. If that isn’t the case, one of the last men added to the Eagles roster could be one of the first to get his walking papers.
That would be a result of the numbers game if that happens because we know the skill is there and he’s talented. During his collegiate career, Good-Jones started 49 consecutive games, a school record. He also played most of the positions along the offensive line. We all know how the Eagles’ coaches feel about versatility.
